Professor Krauss gave an overview on the role each branch plays in Indiana Government, and provided a summary of what role each branch is tasked with fulfilling. Professor Schumm worked with Justice Loretta Rush, new to the Indiana Supreme Court, to walk legislators through the differences between civil and criminal court proceedings. Professor Baker offered an interactive program aimed at demonstrating how the decisions made in state government ultimately end up impacting the lives of Indiana’s residents.
